Abstract

Cultural taste, an enduring topic of concern for cultural sociologists, is predominantly studied through strategies that reinforce ‘methodological nationalism’. Moreover, the study of taste remains confined to Western Europe and Anglophone countries, while being blind to transnational dynamics. This special issue expands these debates, focusing on center-periphery dynamics not necessarily centered around Western Europe and North America. This, while situating the study of class and culture within more intersectional analyses including race, migration, nationality and ethnicity. Thus, our special issue reveals the power of global inequalities across different cultural fields.
